Trail Overview

This mostly dirt loop trail takes you from the downtown of Whitehall into the countryside and drives along the Jefferson River. There are several spots along the trail that have excellent views of the river from above. Most of the land along this trail is private, but there is a small square of BLM land along the river with three dispersed campsites. There is a pull-out for rafts and water access for fishing. Just up the trail from the BLM campsites is swimming access. There is a good mix of wildlife in the area, moose, bald eagle, beaver, cranes, and other animals were spotted from the campsites.
